One of the greatest mysteries to come out of the first ever $3,000,000 Fortnite Pro-Am was “how on earth did Myth manage to fall to his death AGAIN?!”. Now, we have the answer.

TSM’s Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani is regarded as one of the best Fortnite Battle Royale players on Earth. There’s only one problem: every time he plays in a LAN setting he seems to end up dying to fall damage.

The issue originally occurred at an event hosted by Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins but it became even more of a meme when he died to fall damage yet again during the Fortnite Pro-Am tournament on June 12th.

Nobody saw what happened but Myth would later take to Twitter to say that Ninja had thrown a C4 which had caused the mishap but nobody was able to actually go back and watch it.

At least, they couldn’t until the June 14th V4.4.1 Fortnite patch which made the Pro-Am matches available to the view in the Battle Royale client for all players.

One dedicated fan, ignvoiager on Reddit, has used that new feature to go back and watch exactly how Myth’s night was ruined by the eventual Pro-Am champion. The clip can be viewed below.

We actually feel rather sorry Myth. There’s something painful about watching his world come crashing down on him like this at the hands of none of other than Ninja.

However, we wouldn’t say no to seeing a clip of his reaction at the exact moment that he realized he was about to “take the L” in front of hundreds of thousands of people…. Again.

If you haven’t seen the video from the Pro-Am where Myth speaks about the one thing he wants to avoid, check it out below.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

The map used in the Box Fight Tournament was created by two winners of the Princess Castle Creative Contest.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Prizes

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any news on potential prizes yet. However, it will probably follow a similar system used in Wild Wednesdays. Keep in mind that these aren’t final, and they will be updated once more information is available.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
